Today, the organizers behind in-cosmetics global have announced—in light of mounting coronavirus concerns in Europe—a postponement of this year’s event.

in-cosmetics global will take place in Barcelona, Spain this year; and instead of getting started at the end of March (as originally planned) the 2020 show dates are now June 30 – July 2.

Cathy Laporte, Portfolio Director for event organizers Reed Exhibitions (no affiliation with William Reed Business Media, which publishes Cosmetics Design), explains that, given the global spread and risks of coronavirus, the show will serve the industry better later in the year.

“The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our number one priority,” ​says Laporte in her remarks to the press.

“After many weeks monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19 and the notices issued by the World Health Organisation and other relevant governments and local authorities, and in close coordination with all partners involved, we have postponed the event to June.”

“This decision has been difficult because of the major importance of this event to the personal care industry,” ​she says, going on to explain that the organizers of in-cosmetics global “believe it is the best course of action for all involved to ensure we can deliver a high-quality business event later in the year that offers value for both our exhibitors and attendees."

“We look forward to returning to Barcelona at the end of June and thank our exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for their support during this challenging time,” ​emphasizes Laporte.
